Sign of a Better Economy? More Money Spent on Weddings in 2012

Posted: Updated:

This could be a sign of a better economy. Wedding site, TheKnot.com, says brides and grooms spent more money to get married last year than they have since the start of the economic downturn. The site says the average wedding bill was just over $28,000. It surveyed more than 17 thousand couples to get its results.

The site says spending increased in almost every category -- from photographers and D-Js to invitations. Couples in Manhattan spent the most -- averaging nearly $77,000 and Alaskans were the most frugal. They spent an average of just over $15,000.
